More than four months after short-lived reality series Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream
, teen musical trio Jonas Brothers is set to appear on their very own television show via J.O.N.A.S
, which will debut on the Disney Channel later this year, most probably May. The sitcom will feature the brothers - Nick, Joe, and Kevin - as they try to balance their lives between being pop stars and regular guys, a field wherein the brothers should have a lot of practice.
"It's very exciting for us. It's been in the works for a while," Nick tells Access Hollywood. "It is now about us being a band and balancing a normal life. They give us freedom to add our humor in it. We're just honored to have the opportunity to try the acting thing. We're musicians. ... Acting is a new thing for us."
Eight-year-old Frankie Jonas will likewise debut with his brothers on the show.
The Jonas Brothers made their acting debut during the second season of another Disney Channel original series Hannah Montana
with a guest spot on one episode. They made their film debut in the Disney Channel original movie Camp Rock
. stood for "Junior Operative Networking as Spies" in line with the original premise of a teenage rock band (Jonas Brothers) having double lives as government-hired spies. After shooting the pilot, however, the storyline was changed.
"I'm very hard on myself when it comes to acting," Nick further says. "Trying to capture my own personal sense of humor, in real life, it's very dry humor. But sometimes I can't quite master that on camera."
Joe concurs. "We're trying our best, and we'll see the outcome. We really enjoy it ... but this gives us the opportunity to keep the music involved."
